On December 18th, 2020, Turku-Finland based singer/songwriter Mauri Dark releases “Poison Woman,” the third single and (lyric) video from the album. This new single and video follow Dark’s November 6th debut with the title track and the November 19th second single release, “Thin Line Of Understanding.”
“Poison Woman” is a rock-spiced, up-tempo song from the dark, folky debut. 70s drums, bass, Western movie-ish electric guitar and a doomsday piano are the framework for Mauri Dark’s acoustic baritone guitar and deep, low voice. After five albums and hundreds of shows, the frontman for metal duo, Mystons (born Mauri Kosonen, 1978) has stepped into the bare boots of a vulnerable acoustic storyteller. “Poison Woman” is the first song written for his debut.
“Poison Woman’ is the end song of my 7-year relationship. It is about two people who brought out the worst in each other,” Mauri Dark says. “I wrote it when I was living alone in a forest cabin in Finland in 2016. My mother had stage 3 cancer, and the word ‘poison’ came from the treatments. She died on May 27, 2017. 364 days later I was happily married, and our firstborn daughter was born. This roller-coaster of life wrote my debut album.”
